Round 1

Picks 1-16
1. Panthers: Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

Has all of the intangibles and knows how to win. Very competitive here between Stroud and Young.

2. Raiders: Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

If the Raiders were smart they would go with Stroud but that defense needs all the help it can get and a big 3 tec is a commodity nowadays

3. Lions: C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

The no brainer for the lions after going all in on defense in previous drafts.

4. Texans: Myles Murphy, DE, Clemson

Murphy is a freak and just a large human who could bolster that D Line that needs help in every slot.

5. Eagles: Will Anderson, DE, Alabama

Maybe the best defensive prospect since Jadeveon Clowney in my opinion. Just makes plays on every single snap

6. Texans: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

I firmly believe Johnston will cement himself as a top candidate for top WR next to JSN but it will be close.

7. Seahawks: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

6 and 7 could be interchangeable here and both teams will have gotten some electric playmakers

8. Steelers: Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

Tuiott is gone and Heyward is old. TJ Watt needs a stablemate.

9. Cardinals: Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

Georgia breeds defensive specimen this dude is next up

10. Jaguars: Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

Boutte has been the anchor for LSU for the last 2 years and continues to be reliable which will be huge for T Law

11. Bears: Eli Ricks, CB, Alabama

They took Brisker to add to the secondary last year but they have gaps on the outside.

12. Commanders: Peter Skoronski, OT/G, Northwestern

Washington needs help seemingly everywhere. Biggest immediate impact is G.

13. Falcons: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

Mariota has stepped it up but how long can this continue?

14. Seahawks: Paris Johnson, OT, Ohio State

Charles Cross has been a stud and adding Johnson would be an immediate win for the offense.

15. Bengals: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

Burrow gets beat up every single game.

16. Patriots: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Seems like a big Pats move to take the receiver who literally won "receiver of the year" and has a game like a faster, deeper threat version of Jakobi Meyers.
